- $49 for a wheel alignment and state safety check ($99 value)
During the 45- to 60-minute service, ASE-certified technicians align wheels by adjusting their angles, helping maximize tire life and balance tread wear. The techs also perform a safety check of the vehicle’s major systems, ensuring all components are in working order for the state’s Vehicle Safety Inspection, which is necessary for the yearly registration renewal of your vehicle. Also, wheel alignment and safety check may be used during separate visits.
